Of course you meet some not so nice people and rude people too, but you can get that any where. I know someone who has lived in Moose Jaw for 6 years and at one point they weren't the biggest fan of the place, but they said the reason for that was because of the people they knew. They switched up their friends once I came there and they say they love it now and like living there. Who your friends are really do make a big difference and they people you meet, thats like any city or town you go to. The subject of the multiplex is dumb to be brought up here. Of course some people are going to be for it and some people aren't, that is like any big thing that occurs in any city. I'm all for the multiplex!
If it was such a great city,why are you now living in Regina ?

Of course you are all for the Multi-Plex you are not stuck here paying record high city property taxes to pay for it.
Hell I am all for a domed stadium in Regina as well so long as Regina residents have to pay for it.....
Don`t forget the SKYROCKETING utility rates that go along with those taxes!

Don`t forget all the dog s%#t you can find in the green spaces around the city. Thanks to all those "friendly" Moose Jaw citizens who don`t believe in using leashes on their dogs or picking up after them. If your a tourist visiting with children beware of what your kids may find when playing in these green spaces, they aren`t chocolate bars or friendly puppies!!

I have come from the UK to be here for a while and I have to agree. I have found it hard to like anyone here, I find people rude and pretty damn obnoxious the only people that seem decent are the more mature people, the older people here are certainly more friendly then others. I found edmonton a much more friendly place. (Getting weed here is impossible by the way)

I'm shocked at the people who's head is up their butt regarding our 'Fair & Freindly' city. The referendum(s) for the muilti-plex were not legal due to the first being unanimously defeated, then immediately a 2nd appeared, was defeated & again a 3rd. This one tho' was the best. 2 points only. Should the Multi-plex be built downtown or on Thatcher. That really tells us it was a done deal. Someone made a heck of a lot of money on this. Guess who? Al Capone is not dead, he lives under another name. For a tourist city, this is also the most filthy in North America, bar none! Name change from The Freindly City to Filthy City!

So sorry. I ran out of room & didn't have time to remind all the bike riders here in our Freindly City (toungue in cheek) about an election promise made by someone running for Mayor in the last Civic election. Like all politicians those promises aren't worth the powder to blow them to hell. How many new bike paths have we seen since the new council was voted in. Sorry, our money (your taxes) had to go to the ever so necessary Multi-Plex. What a waste of good money that one is. 62 parking spaces in a building that size. Bunch of greedy dummys, one & all. How many of the tax payers will actually use it.

I was living in moose jaw at the time of the vote,and even voted in it. I remember two or three days before the vote,i and everyone on our street recieved a official looking piece of mail that informed us that there was a lot more than 62 parking spots near the multiplex. I wish i would have kept it.Wonder who sent it out ? It was obviously a very false document.An outright lie !! Dirty politics by someone ! Anyone else remember getting one ? Anyone keep the little false document ?

Because someone offered "help", who in fact is not really offering help(think about it!), you think SHE'S put HER foot in HER mouth? He was being facetious.

Perhaps you should come spend some time in "small town" rural Saskatchewan; learn a different perspective. For anyone growing up on a farm, the town where they got their mail, bought groceries, their kids went to school....is THEIR town, hence: "I'm from a small town and grew up on a farm..." Being one of those people myself, I know EXACTLY what

Sounds to me that too many people up north there far west in Canada haven't got the right attitudes, will, experiences and what it takes to build a good and friendly society and environment. What went wrong? My uncle spent 4 years in Alberta from 1929 to 1933 working on a farm in summertime and due to difficult economical times those days world wide he was made redundant in the winter months which he and his friends then spent further north as trappers - and went back in the springtime to work on the farm.
He told me when I was a boy about those years with a lot of love for Alberta and Edmonton and an exciting life there. When his father died he returned to Norway and never went back again but married and stayed here. I suspected he longed back to Alberta in a way all his life. Sounds from what you guys tell here that he nourished wasteable dreams. Sad to learn this..........
